    Do not avenge yourselves, be-loved, but yield place to the
    wrath; for it is written: “Ven-geance is mine;
    I will repay, says Jehovah.â€￾

    —Rom. 12:19.

    Can you rightly condemn another person? No. (Matt. 7:1, 2)

    But you can be confident that justice lies in God’s hands. If you
    feel that you have been the victim of an injustice and find it
    difficult to forgive a wrongdoer who has repented, it would be good
    to realize that the offender too is a victim. He or she also suffers
    the effects of inherited imperfection. (Rom. 3:23) Jehovah feels
    compassion toward all imperfect mankind. Therefore, it is
    appropriate to pray for the offender.

    It is unlikely that we would continue being angry with some-
    one for whom we are praying. And that we should avoid harboring
    resentment toward even those who mistreat us is clear from
    Jesus’ words: “Continue to love yourenemies and to pray for those
    persecuting you.â€￾

    —Matt. 5:44.
